Elvis Ignited The Rise of an Icon in Florida

BOB KEALING From Hillbilly Cat to the King of Rock and Roll “I don’t think there was a better time and place to be a teenager than in Florida in the 1950s. It was such a magical place. Elvis is part of what contributed to that excitement.”—Bob Graham, former Florida governor and United States senator “Kealing tells us the story of what happened when Elvis arrived in Florida and what role the Sunshine State played in his life and musical career. This is a critical era in the Elvis saga.”—William McKeen, editor of Rock and Roll Is Here to Stay: An Anthology “Presents a great picture of what it was like to be a touring musician in the 1950s and also of Florida at the time and how the culture was changed by the shock of Elvis.”—Joy Wallace Dickinson, author of Remembering Orlando: Tales from Elvis to Disney It was his most electric and influential time as a live performer. The young and hungry Elvis burst onto stages large and small—sexy, controversial, brimming with talent and ambition. One lightning-hot year in Florida fueled his rise from novelty act to headlining megastar. Elvis Ignited follows the immensely talented musician through his tour of Florida in 1955–1956, where he played more concerts than in any other state in the country and where he first became the object of worship, scorn, and controversy. Bob Kealing interviews people who saw the King up close in high school gymnasiums, nightclubs, radio stations, and shopping centers, recalling the time-stands-still memories of hearing his hit songs for the first time and the shrieks of young fans at the sight of the young rockabilly god. Struck by a new kind of music and performances so different from anything they had known before, Floridians saw how special Elvis was before the rest of the world caught on. Kealing continues the story through Elvis’s years in the army and the filming of Follow That Dream in Florida in 1961. Elvis’s rise to fame in the Sunshine State was a turning point in American music history. It was the arrival of rock and roll.

An Ice Age Mystery Unearthing the Secrets of the Old Vero Site

RODY JOHNSON Did humans live in Florida during the Ice Age? “A fascinating recounting of the early discovery of a Paleolithic human and the issues that were engendered by various opposing scientific views.”—Dennis Stanford, coauthor of Across Atlantic Ice: The Origin of America’s Clovis Culture “Since its discovery long ago, the complete story of the Old Vero Site has never been told. This is an informative and entertaining account of this remarkable site and its history in American archaeology.”—Tom D. Dillehay, author of The Settlement of the Americas: A New Prehistory “Compelling and engaging.”—Robert S. Carr, author of Digging Miami

HISTORY/SCIENCE/ARCHAEOLOGY March 224 pp. | 6 x 9 | 34 b/w illus. ISBN 978-0-8130-5437-7 | Cloth $24.95

In 1916, to the shock of the scientific community, a Florida geologist discovered human remains mixed with the bones of prehistoric animals in a Vero Beach canal and proclaimed that humans had lived in North America since the Ice Age. Elias Sellards’s findings flew in the face of prevailing wisdom, which held that humans first came to the continent only 6,000 years ago. His claim was snubbed by the top scientists of his day, he was laughed out of the state, and the skull he found—famously known as “Vero Man”—was lost. An Ice Age Mystery tells the story of Sellards’s exciting find and the controversy it sparked. In the years that followed, other archaeological discoveries and the rise of radiocarbon dating established that humans did arrive in North America earlier than previously thought, and many people began to wonder: what exactly had Sellards found at Vero? And what else might be buried there? One hundred years after the first Vero discovery, construction plans threatened to cover up the legendary dig site and a band of citizens and archaeologists protested. Excavations were reopened. Archaeologists uncovered 14,000-year-old burnt mammal bones and charcoal, signs of a human presence, and further found evidence to indicate a continuous human occupation of the site for over several thousand years. Sellards had been right all along. As the dig continues today, questions remain. Who were these people? Where did they come from? And how did they get here? This book draws readers into the past, present, and future of one of the most historic discoveries in American archaeology. RODY JOHNSON is the author of several books, including Chasing the Wind: Inside the Alternative Energy Battle; The Rise and Fall of Dodgertown: 60 Years of Baseball in Vero Beach; and Different Battles: The Search for a World War II Hero.

Bad Guys, Bullets, and Boat Chases True Stories of Florida Game Wardens

BOB H. LEE The dangerous lives of wildlife officers in backcountry Florida “Engaging, humorous, and touching. As we meet this crazy real-life cast, Lee shows us that the true character of those on the frontlines of the fight against wildlife crime is integrity and a commitment to protect animals and landscapes.” —Laurel A. Neme, author of Animal Investigators “Lee takes you behind the scenes on patrol—using everything from airboats to airplanes—as he and other state wildlife officers track and apprehend poachers in the Sunshine State.”—W. H. “Chip” Gross, coauthor of Poachers Were My Prey “Enlightening and entertaining.”—Dave Grant, past president, North American Game Warden Museum “These stories convey the feel of the Florida environment, the tedium of the hiding and waiting, the thrill of the chase and capture, and the exhaustion, exhilaration, or heartbreak of the search and rescue. You won’t be disappointed.” —James “Tom” Mastin, Natural Resource Planning Services, Inc. Imagine yourself alone in the wilderness holding two lawbreaking suspects at gunpoint. No onlookers, no backup. Just you in the dark, in the middle of nowhere, with suspects who would cheerfully kill you if they thought they could get away with it. Bob Lee takes readers deep into the days and nights of Florida game wardens, telling stories of officers who do much more than check licenses. Shoot-outs. Survival. Rescue. Powerboat chases. Black-market gator poaching. Jumping through truck windows to stop turkey poachers, shredding boat propellers on underwater logs, trapping airboats in wild hog muck, ferrying crates of baby sea turtles, hunting for lost persons in remote areas, getting stuck under a 500-pound all-terrain vehicle at the bottom of a sinkhole—these are just some of the situations game wardens find themselves in. From Live Oak to the Everglades, from the cattle ranches west of Lake Okeechobee to the inshore fishing grounds of Pine Island, these adventures span the state. Discover the excitement and danger that game wardens face every day on the job.

The History of Human Space Flight TED SPITZMILLER “Exploration is not a choice, really; it’s an imperative.” —Michael Collins, Gemini and Apollo astronaut “Spitzmiller skillfully weaves stories from around the world and across centuries into a riveting narrative. An excellent blend of understandable technical explanations with a fascinating human saga.”—Dave Finley, National Radio Astronomy Observatory “An ambitious and thorough history, extending back to the earliest risk takers and innovators who laid the groundwork for the astronauts and cosmonauts who would break the bonds of Earth.”—George Leopold, author of Calculated Risk “A wonderfully synthetic and penetrating account of humankind’s historic ventures into space.”—James R. Hansen, author of First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong Highlighting men and women across the globe who have dedicated themselves to pushing the limits of space exploration, this book surveys the programs, technological advancements, medical equipment, and automated systems that have made space travel possible. This is the complete story of manned space flight. Beginning with the eighteenth-century invention of balloons that lifted early explorers into the stratosphere, Ted Spitzmiller describes how humans first came to employ lifting gasses such as hydrogen and helium. He traces the influence of nineteenth-century science fiction writers on the development of rocket science, looks at the role of rocket societies in the early twentieth century, and discusses the use of rockets in World War II warfare. Moving into the space race between the United States and the Soviet Union during the Cold War era, Spitzmiller outlines the engineering and space medicine advances that finally enabled humans to fly beyond the earth’s atmosphere. He recreates the excitement felt around the world at the first orbital flights of Yuri Gagarin and John Glenn. He recounts triumphs such as Neil Armstrong’s “one small step” and tragedies such as the Challenger and Columbia disasters. The story enters the present day with the development of the International Space Station, NASA’s interest in asteroids and Mars, and the emergence of China as a major player in the space arena. Spitzmiller shows the impact of space flight on human history and speculates on the future of exploration beyond our current understandings of physics and the known boundaries of time and space.

Captain “Hell Roaring” Mike Healy

The Generalship of Muhammad

From American Slave to Arctic Hero

Battles and Campaigns of the Prophet of Allah



United States Maritime Literature Award “Likely to remain the definitive biography of Healy.”—Naval History “Fascinating. . . . The stress in Healy’s life came from the need to conceal his racial background by ‘passing for white,’ as the contemporary phrase had it. No African-American commanded a naval or coast guard ship in the nineteenth century, and had his secret come out, he would have been instantly stripped of his officer’s rank. . . . Engrossing and well-written.”—International Journal of Maritime History “Using long-neglected diaries and genealogical research, as well as the expected archival materials, government reports, and secondary sources, [the authors] have produced a remarkably complete, compelling story of an incredibly complex individual.”—Alaska History “This is a book of adventure that tells how one man shaped the Alaskan frontier at a crucial time in American history.”—Vincent William Patton, former Master Chief Petty Officer of the Coast Guard

DENNIS L. NOBLE, retired from the U.S. Coast Guard as a senior chief petty officer, is the author of The U.S. Coast Guard's War on Human Smuggling. TRUMAN R. STROBRIDGE’s many positions in the federal government included command historian of the joint-service Alaska Command and of the U.S. Army, Alaska. He has coauthored two books with Noble. A volume in the series New Perspectives on Maritime History and Nautical Archaeology, edited by James C. Bradford and Gene Allen Smith

“Impressive. . . . A well-researched and very professional military analysis. Apart from its contribution to the literature of military history and counterinsurgency, it reinforces the credibility of the very detailed early accounts of Muhammad’s life and career.”—H-Net “An excellent analysis of Muhammad as a general, placing his battles within the context of military history, and a good introduction to the life of the founder of Islam.”—David Cook, author of Understanding Jihad “Provides an essential understanding to those wanting to know the history that shapes modern insurgencies.”—Maj. Christopher Johnson, U.S. Army The Generalship of Muhammad charts a new path by merging original sources with the latest in military theory in order to highlight the Prophet Muhammad’s military strengths and weaknesses. Muhammad’s campaigns, military thought, and strategy are examined in order to trace his rise from humble beginnings to the creation of a movement that would lead him to become the virtual ruler of Arabia. Incorporating military, political, and economic analyses, Russ Rodgers investigates Muhammad’s use of insurgency warfare in the seventh century to gain control of key cities such as Madinah and Makkah. Rodgers deftly demonstrates how the combination of philosophical, economic, and social pressure on the people of Makkah would eventually force them to succumb to Muhammad’s call to the sole worship of Allah and to accept him as Allah’s last prophet. RUSS RODGERS is a command historian with the U.S. Army. He is the author of Fundamentals of Islamic Asymmetric Warfare: A Documentary Analysis of the Principles of Muhammad.

Read on.”—Bill Nye the Science Guy® and executive director of The Planetary Society “Duggins’s timely and engrossing study will interest explorers and armchair astronauts alike, and remind readers of the excitement of outer space.”—Publishers Weekly “Examines the history of NASA’s robotic exploration of the Red Planet and the agency’s plans for future human exploration. . . . Emphasizes the widespread belief that if human exploration of Mars is to take place, astronauts will have to ‘live off the land’ like Earth-bound explorers of the past.”—Quest “Keeps the fire of exploration going, looking out to the day when humans will make the trailblazing trek to Mars.”—Coalition for Space Exploration “Digs through the history of space exploration as well as the various issues associated with the exploration of Mars.”—Space Review “The hurdles—both technological and financial—have kept human exploration of the Red Planet from becoming a reality. Trailblazing Mars offers an inside look at the current efforts to fulfill this dream.” —Lunar and Planetary Information Bulletin “Concisely and crisply written, this book takes a close and historicallyengaging look at the still-tantalizing prospect of human exploration of Mars. . . .

Red Pepper and Gorgeous George Claude Pepper’s Epic Defeat in the 1950 Democratic Primary

JAMES C. CLARK “A must-read book.”—Miami Herald “Compelling.”—Tampa Bay Magazine “Separates legend from fact and puts the race in the larger context of a changing, growing postwar Florida.”—Orlando Sentinel “A lively examination of one of the most notorious U.S. Senate contests in modern politics. . . . Meticulously researched . . . [and] genuinely entertaining.”—Orlando Home & Leisure “Clark argues [that] this race established the template for Cold War campaigns that deployed anticommunism, appeals to white supremacy, and hostility to the New Deal that in the long run helped revivify the Republican Right.”—Journal of American History “Clark employs crisp, clear prose and an ability to tie together many historical strands in order to construct his engaging nonfiction narrative. . . . An important piece of reading for those fascinated by not only Florida politics but national political history as well.” —Florida Book Review “A savvy, persuasive book.”—International Social Science Review “Clark mines, with special effectiveness and judiciousness, the state’s major newspapers . . . to analyze this ‘rock ’em sock ’em’ contest.” —Journal of Southern History

JAMES C. CLARK is a journalist, magazine editor, and member of the history faculty at the University of Central Florida. He is the author of four books, including Faded Glory: Presidents Out of Power. A volume in the series Florida Government and Politics, edited by David R. Colburn and Susan A. MacManus

The Supreme Court of Florida A Journey toward Justice, 1972–1987

NEIL SKENE “A fascinating judicial study. The importance of the modern high court’s docket is so thoroughly and expertly chronicled in this book: reapportionment, courtroom cameras, personal injury, family law, environmental law, capital punishment, criminal justice, and equal justice under law.”—Thomas E. Baker, coauthor of Appellate Courts “A highly readable portrait of a crucial time in the history of the state high court. It brings to life the jurists and lawyers who contributed so much to contemporary Florida law.”—Mary Ziegler, author of After Roe: The Lost History of the Abortion Debate “A richly sourced, thoroughly researched, and entertaining account of one of the most significant eras in the history of what is arguably the most important (and least reported) branch of Florida government.” —Martin A. Dyckman, author of A Most Disorderly Court “Necessary reading for anyone interested in law and politics in Florida.” —Jon L. Mills, author of Privacy in the New Media Age This third volume in the history of the Florida Supreme Court describes the court during its most tumultuous years. Amid the upheaval of the civil rights movement, the Vietnam War, and Watergate, the story begins with reform in the entire Florida court system. It includes the court’s first black justice, Joseph Hatchett; Governor Reubin Askew’s new system for merit selection of justices; and revision of Article V, the section of the state constitution dealing with the judiciary. Neil Skene moves on to cover landmark court decisions; the introduction of cameras in court; changes to media law, personal injury law, and family and divorce law; privacy rights; gay rights; death penalty cases; and the appointment of the first female justice, Rosemary Barkett. This book is an absorbing portrayal of a judicial institution adapting to a time of deep political and social change. NEIL SKENE, former president and publisher of Congressional Quarterly, is deputy chief of staff at the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.

Edited by KENT SPRIGGS Changing the world, one legal battle at a time “One of the great, largely unknown stories of American history. This volume is a wonderfully evocative demonstration of something often discounted— how important law and lawyers were, and remain, in realizing the promise of full equality for all citizens.”—Kenneth W. Mack, author of Representing the Race: The Creation of the Civil Rights Lawyer “Filled with tales of ordinary people exhibiting extraordinary courage, Voices of Civil Rights Lawyers provides a penetrating and vital new perspective on one of the most turbulent and important periods in American history.”—Lawrence Goldstone, author of Inherently Unequal: The Betrayal of Equal Rights by the Supreme Court, 1865–1903 “Spriggs has performed a great service for future historians and for all of us by collecting the personal memories of lawyers who put their boots on the ground and their lives on the line in the Deep South during the tumultuous civil rights movement.”—James Blacksher, civil rights attorney, Birmingham, Alabama “The different voices are incredibly effective at both describing a harrowing series of events for the lawyers and allowing readers to hear how they interpreted those events in their own individual ways.

While bus boycotts, sit-ins, and other acts of civil disobedience were the engine of the civil rights movement, the law was a primary context. Lawyers played a key role amid profound social upheavals, and the twenty-six contributors to this volume reveal what it was like to be a southern civil rights lawyer in this era. These eyewitness accounts provide unique windows onto the most dramatic moments in civil rights history, illuminating the legal fights that heralded the 1965 Selma March, the first civil judgment against the Ku Klux Klan, the creation of ballot access for blacks in Alabama, and the 1968 Democratic Convention. White and black, male and female, northern- and southern-born, these lawyers discuss both the abuses they endured and the barriers they broke as they helped shape a critical chapter of American history. KENT SPRIGGS, author of the two-volume Representing Plaintiffs in Title VII Actions, has been a civil rights lawyer for fifty-one years. He is an attorney at Spriggs Law Firm in Tallahassee, Florida.

Willy Ley Prophet of the Space Age

JARED S. BUSS From space cadet to the far side of the moon “Willy Ley has been a mystery among spaceflight historians for many years. His role as science writer, advocate, and popularizer is known to many but understood by few. This book unpacks that story.”—Roger D. Launius, associate director of collections and curatorial affairs, National Air and Space Museum “Ley lit the fire of interplanetary enthusiasm in the hearts of generations of young space cadets. Long overdue, this biography establishes the details and the ups and downs of Willy Ley’s career.”—Tom D. Crouch, author of Lighter Than Air: An Illustrated History of Balloons and Airships

BIOGRAPHY/SPACE SCIENCE August 320 pp. | 6 x 9 | 10 b/w photos ISBN 978-0-8130-5443-8 | Printed Case $34.95s

“An insightful biography of one of the great popularizers of space exploration. Beyond recovering the fascinating and many contradictory aspects of Willy Ley’s extraordinary life, Buss has provided a valuable case study of the complex relationship between science popularization, mass media, and scientific advocacy in the twentieth century.”—Asif A. Siddiqi, author of The Red Rockets’ Glare: Spaceflight and The Soviet Imagination, 1857–1957 Science writer Willy Ley inspired Americans of all ages to imagine a future of interplanetary travel long before space shuttles existed. This is the first biography of an important public figure who predicted and boosted the rise of the Space Age, yet has been overlooked in the history of science. Born in Germany, Ley became involved in amateur rocketry until the field was taken over by the Nazi regime. He fled to America, where he forged a path as a weapons expert and journalist during World War II and as a rocket researcher after the war. As America’s foremost authority on rockets and space travel, he wrote many books and articles for science fiction magazines. He was a consultant for television’s Tom Corbett, Space Cadet and the Disney program Man in Space, thrilling public audiences with a romanticized view of what spaceflight would be like. Yet as astronauts took center stage and scientific intellectuals such as Wernher von Braun became influential during the space race, Ley lost his celebrity status. He was ignored by younger historians who saw his style of popular writing as old-fashioned. This book returns Willy Ley to his rightful place as the energizer of an era—a time when scientists and science popularizers shared prestige and mixed ranks to make outlandish dreams come true. JARED S. BUSS is an adjunct instructor in history at Oklahoma City Community College.

Edited by JASON STEUBER and ALLYSA B. PEYTON “A striking new addition to the field. Belongs alongside similar histories of the overseas development of other Asian countries’ major Asian art collections.”—Jinyoung Jin, associate director of cultural programs, Stony Brook University “Advances recent investigations in both the history of collecting traditional, modern, and contemporary Korean art outside the country of origin and the aesthetic, iconographic, and cultural dimensions of Korean art in its local, regional, and international contexts.”—Richard A. Born, senior curator emeritus, Smart Museum of Art, University of Chicago A monumental addition to the understudied field of Korean art, this brilliantly illustrated volume assembles the perspectives of art historians, critics, curators, and museum directors from major universities and museums around the world to trace the varied and dynamic experiences of Korean art acquisitions over the past century.

Eroticism, Spirituality, and Resistance in Black Women’s Writings

In Search of Asylum



“Provocative . . . articulates the importance of embodied, erotic spirituality to black female subjectivity and empowerment.”—Tulsa Studies in Women’s Literature “Sets out to reclaim the right of black women to their sexual and erotic expression untainted by the stereotypes and disparagements that have historically confined them.”—African American Review “Captures one of the most challenging concerns of scholars who engage black women's literature, culture, and theory: the ongoing quest to locate a form of black female sexual agency that neither withers in the chilly lake of sexual repression nor explodes in the heat of hypersexual stereotypes.”—MELUS “Successfully undertakes an analysis of how black women writers have used overlapping narrative depictions of sexuality and spirituality to recast the denigrated black female body and rewrite an empowered and fully actualized black female subject.”—Candice M. Jenkins, author of Private Lives, Proper Relations: Regulating Black Intimacy “The most original and significant contributions are the often brilliant readings of Morrison, Adisa, and Danticat. The work is riveting, both methodologically and critically.”—Leslie Sanders, editor of Fierce Departures: The Poetry of Dionne Brand Beginning with Zora Neale Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God and continuing into contemporary black women’s writings, Donna Weir-Soley emphasizes the importance of sexuality in the development of black female subjectivity. Analyzing the works and characters of such writers as Toni Morrison, Opal Palmer Adisa, and Edwidge Danticat, she reveals how these writers highlight the interplay between the spiritual and the sexual through religious symbols found in Voudoun, Santeria, Condomble, Kumina, and Hoodoo. Her arguments are particularly persuasive in proposing an alternative model for black female subjectivity. DONNA AZA WEIR-SOLEY, associate professor of English at Florida International University, is coeditor of Caribbean Erotic: Poetry, Prose & Essays.

The Later Writings of Eric Walrond


“Set in the Caribbean, Panama, the U.S., and England, [Walrond’s] fiction captures the experiences of working-class peoples, often migrants, as they confront the depredations of colonialism, racial prejudice, and economic exploitation. . . . A significant and fascinating collection.”—African American Review “Brings together a number of interesting pieces of fiction and nonfiction by this Guyana-born, Barbados- and Panama-bred author.” —New West Indian Guide “Forms part of a gradual rehabilitation of Walrond’s work that has been taking place in recent years.”—Caribbean Review of Books “Place[s] Walrond squarely on the map. . . . In Search of Asylum could not have arrived at a more propitious time.”—sx salon Eric Walrond is one of the great underexamined figures of the Harlem Renaissance and the Caribbean diaspora. Compiling Walrond’s European journalism and later fiction, as well as the pieces he wrote during the 1950s at Roundway Hospital in Wiltshire, England, where he was a voluntary patient, this collection at last fills in the biographical gaps in Walrond’s life. It provides insights into the contours of his later work and the cultural climates in which he functioned between 1928 and his death in 1966. LOUIS J. PARASCANDOLA, professor of English at Long Island University, is author or editor of several books including “Look for Me All Around You”: Anglophone Caribbean Immigrants in the Harlem Renaissance. CARL A. WADE, senior lecturer in English at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, Barbados, has published extensively on Caribbean American writers and writing.

The Cubalogues

Derek Walcott

Beat Writers in Revolutionary Havana

Politics and Poetics



“This delightful incursion into Beat studies opens entirely new territory through its examination of Beat writers’ treatment of Castro’s revolution in Cuba.”—American Book Review

“An important contribution to the study of Walcott’s poetry and plays.”—Modernism/modernity

“As an early supporter of the original non-Communist Cuban revolution, I much appreciate this story of the involvement of American beat poets with the Fidelista cause. Dubbed the ‘Cubalogues,’ their interaction with Cuban editors and poets is a unique part of Cuban cultural history, and it needs to be told to an American audience.”—Lawrence Ferlinghetti “Offers a sweeping perspective that includes freedom of speech, black nationalism, and sexuality and gender politics. . . . A tightlyfocused, compelling narrative about the encounter between midcentury American radicals and the intense, blossoming of promise in the political landscape of revolutionary Cuba.”—Journal of Modern Literature “Tietchen argues that in the immediate aftermath of the Castro revolution, Cuba was a collaborative imaginative space . . . for the creation of Beat counterdiscourses on imperialism, race, sexual freedom, and democracy.”—American Literature “This first-rate book contributes to understanding US politics (both in the Cold War and after) as well as Bohemian writing. . . . Essential.” —Choice “Tietchen’s book is well researched, smartly argued, and quite successful at rehabilitating an unfair popular image of the Beats as apolitical deadbeats. He situates the Cubaloguers skillfully and interestingly among the ideological and political battles of that time.” —Caribbean Review of Books

TODD F. TIETCHEN is associate professor of English at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell.

“This ambitious book takes in the full corpus of Walcott—plays, essays, interviews, etc., as well as the poetry—and argues the essential unity of his (humanistic) vision.”—Wasafiri “Walcott, [Burnett] says, has assimilated western tradition to his own project, using it to create a new plural world of open-ended possibilities. . . . A book that should be of interest to any student of Walcott’s literature.”—Times Higher Education Supplement “For Burnett, the vernacular of the Caribbean is Walcott’s great resource.” —Choice “Burnett is very good on Walcott’s aesthetic and technical strategies, particularly the mythopoeic framework of his thought, and the epic form which he frequently employs.”—New West Indian Guide “Convincingly suggests that Walcott’s art radiates outward from St. Lucia to the West Indies, the Caribbean, Latin America, and the Americas, becoming an art that honors and enlarges the English language and its multiple histories and usages.”—World Literature Today “A long-overdue critical assessment of Walcott’s varied and extensive oeuvre. Its insightful readings and detailed historical and cultural context make it a must-read for students of contemporary Caribbean literature and culture.”—Lizabeth Paravisini-Gebert, Vassar College Paula Burnett offers a new interpretation of the life’s work of acclaimed St. Lucian poet, playwright, and Nobel Prize winner Derek Walcott. Often regarded as the radical voice of the Third World, Walcott’s drama and poetry together form a coherent project designed to create a legacy for modern Caribbean society. Illuminating his ideology and the technique that informs his writing, Burnett discusses his unique approach to myth, identity, and aesthetics. What emerges is the picture of an epic poet with remarkable gifts working to impart the distinctive wisdom of Caribbean culture. Burnett also reveals an artist with a message to the world: that a positive sense of identity can be built out of negative circumstances like injustice and exploitation, if only creativity is mobilized. PAULA BURNETT, lecturer in English at Brunel University in London, is the editor of The Penguin Book of Caribbean Verse in English.

N OW I N PA P E R BA C K Foundational Essays in James Joyce Studies Edited by MICHAEL PATRICK GILLESPIE “A handy anthology of key articles, twelve in all, excavated from the trove of Joyce interpretation, analysis and scholarship. . . . Each piece marks a moment of departure subsequent studies have built on, extended, or reacted against, but which nonetheless laid down significant parameters for approaching Joyce’s works.”—Irish Studies Review “An excellent book.”—Studies: An Irish Quarterly “The essays in this volume provide a valuable and necessary context for the studies that have come after them; they were revelatory when they appeared, and they will be revelatory again. No one has a better grasp of the breadth and depth of Joyce criticism than Michael Patrick Gillespie.”—Morris Beja, author of James Joyce: A Literary Life “Provides readers a revealing, stimulating basis for moving forward with their own interpretations while remembering the paths already traveled by twelve canny, influential, earlier readers of Joyce’s memorable narratives.” —John Paul Riquelme, editor of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man MICHAEL PATRICK GILLESPIE is professor of English and director of the Center for the Humanities in an Urban Environment at Florida International University. He is the author or editor of numerous books, including James Joyce and the Exilic Imagination. A volume in the Florida James Joyce Series, edited by Sebastian D. G. Knowles

James Joyce’s Painful Case CÓILÍN OWENS “An eminently insightful and informative study of a single story, as well as a profound exploration of Joyce’s position within his own historical moment and its most urgent philosophical and religious questions.”—James Joyce Quarterly “One of the more intellectually capacious, wide-ranging studies on Joyce and his work to emerge in some time. . . . Owen’s book is among the finest studies of Dubliners ever written as well as among the best—most provocative, revealing, and useful—critical works on Joyce to be published in some time.” —Philological Quarterly “While Owens has captured the breadth of subjects that a casebook would offer, he balances his readings with a great deal of focused and specific close reading. . . . This book is an excellent companion for reading ‘A Painful Case’ and would be essential reading for anyone engaging in an in-depth study of Dubliners.” —James Joyce Literary Supplement “Inspires awe, admiration, and wonder. . . . There is something new for every Joyce student and scholar to learn from Owens’s thorough research.”—English Literature in Transition, 1880–1920 Demonstrating that one story from James Joyce’s Dubliners is not only a turning point in that book but also a microcosm of a wide range of important Joycean influences and preoccupations, Cóilín Owens examines the dense intertextuality of “A Painful Case.” COÍLÍN OWENS, professor emeritus of English at George Mason University, is the author of Before Daybreak: “After the Race” and the Origins of Joyce’s Art. A volume in the Florida James Joyce Series, edited by Sebastian D. G. Knowles

Empire and Pilgrimage in Conrad and Joyce AGATA SZCZESZAKBREWER “Essential reading.” —Modern Fiction Studies “At the heart of Szczeszak-Brewer’s analysis is the idea that both Conrad and Joyce, as modernists, are deeply concerned with interrogating the colonizing impulse. . . . With its striking discussions of the intersections of modernism, religion, and colonialism, [Empire and Pilgrimage in Conrad and Joyce] is a useful and original addition to the field.”—James Joyce Quarterly “Explores how Conrad and Joyce use the religious motif of the pilgrimage to denounce western colonization practices. . . . By virtue of its original approach to the works and worlds of Conrad and Joyce, this book will interest scholars in a variety of fields, from cultural studies, history, and religion, to literature and beyond.”—European Legacy This book offers a fresh look at modernist writers Joseph Conrad and James Joyce, revealing how their rejection of organized religion and the colonial presence in their native countries allowed them to destabilize traditional notions of power, colonialism, and individual freedom in their texts. The result is an engaging and enlightening investigation of their writings and of the larger literary movement to which they belonged. AGATA SZCZESZAK-BREWER, associate professor of English at Wabash College, is the editor of Critical Approaches to Joseph Conrad. A volume in the Florida James Joyce Series, edited by Sebastian D. G.

NELS PEARSON American Conference for Irish Studies Donald Murphy Prize for Distinguished First Book

“Pearson is convincing in arguing that Irish writers often straddle the space between national identity and a sense of belonging to a larger, more cosmopolitan environment.” —Choice “[An] admirable book. . . . Repositions the artistic subject as something different from the biographical Joyce, Bowen, or Beckett, cohering as a series of particular aesthetic responses to the dilemma of belonging in an Irish context.”—James Joyce Broadsheet “Demonstrat[es]. . . just what it is that makes comparative readings of history, politics, literature, theory, and culture indispensable to the work that defines what is best and most relevant about scholarship in the humanities today.”—Modern Fiction Studies “A smart and compelling approach to Irish expatriate modernism. . . . An important new book that will have a lasting impact on postcolonial Irish studies.”—breac “Shows how three important Irish writers crafted forms of cosmopolitan thinking that spring from, and illuminate, the painful realities of colonialism and anti-colonial struggle.”—Marjorie Howes, author of Colonial Crossings: Figures in Irish Literary History


“Seeks to revisit Martí’s racial ideology through attention to his work on the United States. . . . Fountain moves nimbly among Martí’s most famous works as well as lesser-known pieces, highlighting common themes as well as personal evolution.” —Hispanic American Historical Review “Deserves the attention of all those who are interested in José Martí, in the history of the USA and of Cuba in the nineteenth century.” —Iberoamericana “Recommended for students and those interested in expanding their knowledge about historically evolving race relations.”—Colonial Latin American Historical Review “Essential reading for those who increasingly appreciate the enormous importance of Martí as one of the nineteenth century’s most influential and most original thinkers.”—John Kirk, coeditor of Redefining Cuban Foreign Policy Anne Fountain argues that it was in the United States that José Martí—confronted by the forces of manifest destiny, the influence of race in politics, the legacy of slavery, and the plight and promise of the black Cuban diaspora—fully engaged with the specter of racism. Examining Martí’s complete works with a focus on key portions, Fountain reveals the evolution of his thinking on the topic, indicating the significance of his sources, providing a context for his writing, and offering a structure for his works on race.

“Traces the ways that Cuban poets dealt with issues of national identity, reflected in their views of Afrocubanismo, often in response to historical changes in public and official opinions on the most visual manifestation of Afro-Cuban culture: carnival.” —Choice “Uncovers a wealth of literary texts, primarily poems, that chart the impact of las comparsas, Afro-Cuban festival dances, on mainstream Cuban life. . . . Investigates the ways in which the relationship between racial and ethnic divisions, and between castes and classes, created a literary movement full to the brim with emotional and sensational resonances.” —Wasafiri “Underscores the sociopolitical and historical contexts of these poems which have shaped the literary production and message of the Afrocubanismo movement. . . . A tour de force.” —Callaloo “Successfully plumbs the position of the AfroCuban performer and brings into sharp relief the way politicians historically sought to affect all elements of Cuban culture.”—New West Indian Guide “Proposes a truly novel approach to key figures in Cuban literature.”—Luis Duno-Gottberg, Rice University

This is Haitian history through the eyes of a Haitian scholar.” —American Historical Review “Unpacks the cultural, political, and economic impact of U.S. occupation, and by extension, American imperialism in Haiti.”—Quito Swan, author of Black Power in Bermuda: The Struggle for Decolonization Beginning with the 1915 arrival of United States Marines in Haiti, Contrary Destinies chronicles the internal, external, and natural forces that have shaped Haiti as it is today, striking a balance between the realities faced by the people on the island and the global and transnational contexts that affect their lives. Leon Pamphile examines how American policies towards the Caribbean nation—during the Cold War and later as the United States became the sole world superpower—and the legacies of the occupation contributed to the gradual erosion of Haitian independence, culminating in a second occupation and the current United Nations peacekeeping mission. LEON D. PAMPHILE, founder and executive director of the Functional Literacy Ministry of Haiti, is the author of Haitians and African Americans: A Heritage of Tragedy and Hope.

N OW I N PA P E R BA C K Slave Families and the Hato Economy in Puerto Rico

Rescuing Our Roots



“A welcome addition to the scholarship on slavery in the Americas, deepening our knowledge of seventeenthand eighteenthcentury Puerto Rico and the Western Caribbean.” —American Historical Review

“Contributes new perspectives on historical black identity formation and contemporary activism in Cuba. . . . Highly recommended.” —Choice

“Stark use[s] new archival sources to enlarge understanding of the range of labor, family, and production systems in the colonial Caribbean.”—Choice “Breaks new ground. . . . Compel[s] a revision of prevailing wisdom about slavery in the Caribbean. . . . A major contribution to the study of slave demography, slave families, and comparative slavery generally.”—Journal of Interdisciplinary History “Focuses on the extent to which enslaved men and women married and established families in accordance with the Catholic Church prior to the reemergence of labor-intensive, commercial agriculture.”—The Americas “Deftly uses the available parish registers to document the stages of the coming of African men and women to Puerto Rico in the eighteenth century and reveals patterns of family formation and bonds of solidarity among the African slaves and with the rest of society.”—Fernando Picó, author of Puerto Rico Remembered DAVID M. STARK is professor of history at Grand Valley State University.

The African Anglo-Caribbean Diaspora in Contemporary Cuba

Brazil, Lyric, and the Americas CHARLES A. PERRONE “Outstanding. . . . Examines the place of Brazilian poetry in the context of the Americas from the 1990s to the present. . . . One of the few excellent books in English that introduce the vast territory of Brazilian poets to a wide audience.”—Latin American Literary Review “[Perrone] writes imaginatively and with intellectual verve, displaying a true passion not only for the authors and texts, but also for the New World fellowship that inspired them.” —Luso-Brazilian Review

“Provides invaluable insight into the histories and lives of Cubans who trace their origins to the Anglo-Caribbean.”—Robert Whitney, author of State and Revolution in Cuba

“Highly inventive, complex, and diverse, like Brazil, this book engages in a conversation with other genres and other traditions.” —Latin Americanist

“Adds a missing piece to the existing literature about the renewal of black activism in Cuba, all the while showing the links and fractures between pre- and post-1959 society.”—Devyn Spence Benson, Louisiana State University

“Achieves a remarkable synthesis of contemporary Brazilian poetic production, its intersection with other arts, and its hemispheric vocation.”—Review: Literature and Arts of the Americas

In the early twentieth century, laborers from the British West Indies immigrated to Cuba, attracted by employment opportunities. The Anglo-Caribbean communities flourished, but after 1959, many of their cultural institutions were dismantled. This book turns an ethnographic lens on their descendants who—during the Special Period in the 1990s— moved to “rescue their roots” by revitalizing their ethnic associations and reestablishing ties outside the island. Unlike most studies of black Cubans, which focus on Afro-Cuban religion or popular culture, Rescuing Our Roots offers a view of strategies and modes of black belonging that transcend ideological, temporal, and spatial boundaries.

“Sets out to demonstrate that contra the stereotypes of a languid Brazil, so distant from its neighbors in South and North America, the country has long been involved in connecting, sharing and recycling their works.”—Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology

Perrone takes us on a daring alternative voyage whose logic responds to new ways of thinking of culture and art internationally.”—Hispania “This is Perrone at his most brilliant. Erudite but accessible, thorough but playful: Brazil, Lyric, and the Americas is the latest contribution by the most knowledgeable U.S.-based scholar of the Brazilian lyric.”—Severino João Albuquerque, University of Wisconsin

Water from Stone

Mississippian Beginnings

Archaeology and Conservation at Florida’s Springs


JASON O’DONOUGHUE “O’Donoughue writes thoughtfully and poetically about Florida’s geological history and long-term patterns of environmental change and cultural adaptation. A compelling case for the relevance of archaeology to current environmental concerns.”—Christopher B. Rodning, coeditor of Fort San Juan and the Limits of Empire “Examines Florida’s critically important springs and discusses how they were used and modified over thousands of years by local inhabitants, placing the springs in a deep historic context while offering well-informed suggestions for their long term management and use.”—David G. Anderson, coeditor of Archaeology of the Mid-Holocene Southeast In Water from Stone, Jason O’Donoughue investigates the importance of natural springs to ancient Floridians. Throughout their history, Florida’s springs have been gathering places for far-flung peoples. O’Donoughue finds that springs began flowing several millennia earlier than previously thought, serving as sites of habitation, burials, ritualized feasting, and monument building for Florida’s earliest peoples. O’Donoughue moves beyond the focus on the ecological roles of springs and the current popular image of springs as timeless and pristine, approaches taken by many archaeologists and conservationists. He argues for an archaeological perspective that emphasizes the social and historical importance of springs, explaining how this viewpoint creates a bridge between past and present, enhances the intrinsic value of springs, and is vital to the success of contemporary conservation efforts.

“An excellent volume that demonstrates a more explicit, nuanced, and careful approach to interpreting the social lives of these past communities. An indispensable resource.”—Paul D. Welch, author of Archaeology at Shiloh Indian Mounds, 1899–1999 “Provides much needed updated perspectives on the origins of the Mississippian archaeological cultural phenomenon in the Southeast.” —Sissel Schroeder, University of Wisconsin–Madison Using fresh evidence and nontraditional ideas, the contributing authors of Mississippian Beginnings reconsider the origins of the Mississippian culture of the North American Midwest and Southeast (A.D. 1000–1600). Challenging the decades-old opinion that this culture evolved similarly across isolated Woodland populations, they discuss signs of migrations, pilgrimages, violent conflicts, and other far-flung entanglements that now appear to have shaped the early Mississippian past. Presenting recent fieldwork, archival studies, and new investigations of legacy collections, the essays in this volume interpret results through contemporary perspectives that emphasize agency and historical contingency. They track the various ways disparate cultures across a sizeable swath of the continent came to share similar architecture, pottery, subsistence strategies, sociopolitical organization, iconography, and religion. Together, they provide the most comprehensive examination of early Mississippian culture in nearly thirty years. GREGORY D. WILSON, associate professor of anthropology at the University of California, Santa Barbara, is the author of The Archaeology of Everyday Life at Early Moundville.

FLORIDA MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY RIPLEY P. BULLEN SERIES Simplicity, Equality, and Slavery An Archaeology of Quakerism in the British Virgin Islands, 1740–1780

JOHN M. CHENOWETH “A significant empirical contribution to the transdisciplinary study of eighteenth-century Atlantic history and the colonial history of the Christian Church.”—Dan Hicks, author of The Garden of the World: An Historical Archaeology of Sugar Landscapes in the Eastern Caribbean “An insightful analysis of a fascinating topic.”—James A. Delle, author of The Colonial Caribbean: Landscapes of Power in the Plantation System “A nuanced look at Quakerism and its relationship with slavery.” —Patricia M. Samford, author of Subfloor Pits and the Archaeology of Slavery in Colonial Virginia Inspired by the Quaker ideals of simplicity, equality, and peace, a group of white planters formed a community in the British Virgin Islands during the eighteenth century. Yet they lived in a slave society, and nearly all their members held enslaved people. In this book, John Chenoweth examines how the community navigated the contradictions of Quakerism and plantation ownership. Using archaeological and archival information, Chenoweth reveals how a web of connections led to the community’s establishment, how Quaker religious practices intersected with other aspects of daily life in the Caribbean, how these practices were altered to fit a slaverybased economy and society, and how the eventual development of dissent and schism brought about the end of the community after just one generation. He uses this story as a fascinating example of the ways religious ideals can be interpreted in everyday practice to adapt to different local contexts. JOHN M. CHENOWETH is assistant professor of anthropology at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. A volume in the Florida Museum of Natural History: Ripley P. Bullen Series

Fit for War Sustenance and Order in the Mid-Eighteenth-Century Catawba Nation

MARY ELIZABETH FITTS “Fitts combines archaeology and ethnohistory to explore Catawba strategies for retaining sovereignty and power in the colonial era. A model of interdisciplinary methodology, this book offers new insights into coalescence, colonialism, and Indigenous persistence.”—Christina Snyder, author of Slavery in Indian Country The Catawba Nation played an important role in the early colonial Southeast, serving as a military ally of the British and a haven for refugees from other native groups, yet it has largely been overlooked by scholars and the public. Fit for War explains how the Nation maintained its sovereignty while continuing to reside in its precolonial homeland near present-day Charlotte, North Carolina. Drawing from colonial archives and new archaeological data, Mary Elizabeth Fitts shows that militarization helped the Catawba maintain political autonomy but forced them to consolidate their settlements and—with settler encroachment and a regional drought—led to a food crisis. Focusing on craft and foodways, Fitts uncovers how Catawba women worked to feed the Nation, a story missing from colonial records. Her research highlights the double-edged nature of tactics available to American Indian groups seeking to keep their independence in the face of colonization. MARY ELIZABETH FITTS is assistant state archaeologist for the North Carolina Office of State Archaeology and a research associate with the Research Laboratories of Archaeology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Maya E Groups Calendars, Astronomy, and Urbanism in the Early Lowlands

Edited by DAVID A. FREIDEL, ARLEN F. CHASE, ANNE S. DOWD, and JERRY MURDOCK “Leading archaeologists present the most recent evidence on a complex of architecture, iconography, and artifacts closely linked to the rise of the divine kingships of the ancient Maya. An important volume for anyone interested in the rise of ancient states.” —Arthur Demarest, author of The Ancient Maya: The Rise and Fall of a Rainforest Civilization “New data presented and interpreted here will inform the next generation of researchers and enthrall Maya enthusiasts everywhere.” —Debra S. Walker, editor of Perspectives on the Ancient Maya of Chetumal Bay In ancient Maya cities, “E Groups” are sets of buildings aligned with the movements of the sun. This volume presents new archaeological data to reveal that E Groups were constructed earlier than previously thought. In fact, they are the earliest identifiable architectural plan at many Maya settlements. More than just astronomical observatories or calendars, E Groups were gathering places for emerging communities and centers of ritual—the very first civic-religious public architecture in the Maya lowlands. Investigating a wide variety of E Group sites in different contexts, this volume pieces together the development of social and political complexity in the ancient Maya civilization. DAVID A. FREIDEL is professor of anthropology at Washington University in St. Louis. ARLEN F. CHASE is professor of anthropology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. ANNE S.

Multiethnicity and Migration at Teopancazco

Bones of Complexity

Investigations of a Teotihuacan Neighborhood Center

Edited by LINDA R. MANZANILLA “Illuminates a multiethnic neighborhood within one of the world’s greatest urban developments of ancient times. Presents some of the most sophisticated new scientific techniques that are allowing scholars to see the details of life in the ancient world in a vivid dimension that has not before been possible.” —Cynthia Robin, author of Everyday Life Matters: Maya Farmers at Chan “Manzanilla has been, and still is, a pioneer in the application of recent technology to aid in the interpretation of archaeological remains.”—Rebecca Storey, author of Life and Death in the Ancient City of Teotihuacan: A Modern Paleodemographic Synthesis “Vital for scholars of Mesoamerican archaeology and the ‘Classic’ period in particular.” —Ian Farrington, author of Cusco: Urbanism and Archaeology in the Inka World Like modern-day New York City, the ancient city of Teotihuacan in Central Mexico was built by a flood of immigrants who created a complex and diverse urban landscape. This detailed volume analyzes 116 burials in Teopancazco, a powerful neighborhood that controlled most of the city’s intake and distribution of foreign raw materials. Applying sophisticated bioarchaeological techniques such as isotope analysis, trace elements, and DNA profiling, this holistic study gives life to the population of the earliest known multiethnic metropolis. LINDA R. MANZANILLA, professor and researcher at the Institute of Anthropological Research at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, is editor or coeditor of several books, including The Neighborhood as a Social and Spatial Unit in Mesoamerican Cities.

Frontiers of Colonialism Edited by CHRISTINE D. BEAULE “An original contribution and an important one. Presents interesting and compelling case studies in the variability of colonialism and colonial encounters.”—Melissa S. Murphy, coeditor of Enduring Conquests: Rethinking the Archaeology of Resistance to Spanish Colonialism in the Americas “Creates bridges to understand and compare diverse sets of data and questions, incorporating larger ideas of colonial and indigenous structure, action, reaction, and agency. These new insights may turn over some previously held understandings of what we associate with colonialism and how to perceive it.” —John G. Douglass, coeditor of Ancient Households of the Americas: Conceptualizing What Households Do “Pushes archaeologists out of familiar theoretical, methodological, and regional silos to expand understandings of colonial context and relations between old-timers/indigenous people and newcomers/colonists.”—Siobhan Hart, coeditor of Decolonizing Indigenous Histories: Exploring Prehistoric/Colonial Transitions in Archaeology Bringing together case studies of prehistoric and historic sites from Western and non-Western contexts, including China, the Philippines, the Pacific, Egypt, and elsewhere, Frontiers of Colonialism makes the surprising claim that colonialism can and should be compared across radically different time periods and locations. Christine Beaule challenges archaeologists to rethink these two major self-imposed boundaries of study and instead to examine colonial administrative strategies, local resistance, and cross-cultural interaction within a larger, comparative framework. Beaule argues that crossing these frontiers of study will give scholars more power to recognize and explain the varied local impacts of colonialism. CHRISTINE BEAULE is associate professor of anthropology at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa.

Archaeological Perspectives on the French in the New World Edited by ELIZABETH M. SCOTT “This book has essentially created a new field of study with a surprising range of insights on the ethnicity, class, gender, and foodways of French speakers of European and African descent adapting to life under British, Spanish, or American political regimes.”—Gregory A. Waselkov, author of A Conquering Spirit: Fort Mims and the Redstick War of 1813–1814

The Archaeology of American Mining PAUL J. WHITE “Outstanding. Focuses on the material aspects of mining’s past to understand the American experience in this economic culture.”—Donald L. Hardesty, author of Mining Archaeology in the American West: A View from the Silver State “Artfully synthesizes the complexities of American mining heritage using archaeology’s broad, temporal scale to generate a baseline for documenting, interpreting, and sustainably managing mining sites and landscapes. This book is a revelatory tool for archaeologists, historians, resource managers, and students.” —Kelly Dixon, author of Boomtown Saloons: Archaeology and History in Virginia City “Offers a rarely seen synthesis of industrial archaeology, labor archaeology, and mining heritage.”—Michael Roller, archaeologist, National Park Service

Correcting the notion that French influence in the Americas was confined mostly to Québec and New Orleans, this collection reveals a wide range of vibrant French-speaking communities in the Americas both during and long after the end of French colonial rule. Analyzing artifacts including clay pipes, colonoware, and food remains alongside a rich body of historical records, contributors focus on how French descendants impacted North America, the Caribbean, and South America even after 1763. They argue that communities do not need to be located in French colonies or contain French artifacts to be considered Francophone, and they show that many Francophone groups were composed of a complex mix of ethnic French, Métis, Native Americans, and African Americans. This volume emphasizes that French colonists and their descendants have played an important role in New World histories.

The mining industry in North America is an important subject for archaeological investigation due to its rich and conflicted history. It is associated with the opening of the frontier and the rise of the United States as an industrial power but also with social upheaval, the dispossession of indigenous lands, and extensive environmental impacts. Synthesizing fifty years of research on American mining sites that date from colonial times to the present, Paul White provides an ideal overview of the field for both students and professionals. Case studies are taken from a wide range of contexts, from eastern coal mines to Alaskan gold fields, and special attention is paid to the domestic and working lives of miners. Exploring what material artifacts can tell us about the lives of people who left few records, White demonstrates how archaeologists contribute to understanding mining legacies.

Modes of Production The Country Where and Archaeology My Heart Is Edited by ROBERT M. ROSENSWIG and JERIMY J. CUNNINGHAM “For more than a century, scholars have critiqued, misinterpreted, and bickered about Marx’s concept of mode of production. Modes of Production and Archaeology cuts through the dense and thorny intellectual thicket that grew up from these debates. The book presents an easily understood discussion of Marx’s concepts and demonstrates how archaeologists can analyze modes of production to explain long-term patterns in cultural change.” —Randall McGuire, author of Archaeology as Political Action Contributors to this volume explain how archaeologists can use Karl Marx and Frederick Engels’ mode of production concept to study long-term patterns in human society. Mode of production analysis describes how labor is organized to create surplus which is then used for political purposes. This type of analysis allows archaeologists to compare and contrast peoples across distant continents and eras, from hunter-gatherer groups to early agriculturalists to nation-states. Presenting a range of different perspectives from researchers working in a wide variety of societies and time periods, this volume clearly demonstrates why historical materialism matters to the field of archaeology. ROBERT M. ROSENSWIG, associate professor of anthropology at the University at AlbanySUNY, is the author of The Beginnings of Mesoamerican Civilization: Inter-Regional Interaction and the Olmec and coeditor of Early New World Monumentality.

Brighton, author of Historical Archaeology of the Irish Diaspora: A Transnational Approach Drawing on studies covering the period 1500 AD to the present, this volume explores the archaeology of the period in which modern nationalism developed. While most previous research has focused on how governments and other institutions manipulate archaeology for ideological reasons, the contributors to The Country Where My Heart Is look at what material artifacts can reveal about the rise and fall of national identities in the modern world. Approaching the topic from a broad international perspective, this volume features case studies from northwestern and Central Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Americas. Contributors show how shared social identities engaged with national identities in these regions as modern nation-states first began to emerge.

“Foremost scholars of indigenous Amazonia explore the vast and interesting gap between rules and practice, demonstrating how sociocultural systems endure and even prosper due to the flexibility, creativity, and resilience of the people within them.”—Jeremy M. Campbell, author of Conjuring Property This volume reveals that individuals in Amazonian cultures often disregard or reinterpret the marriage rules of their societies—rules that anthropologists previously thought reflected practice. It is the first book to consider not just what the rules are but how people in these societies negotiate, manipulate, and break them in choosing whom to marry. Ethnographic case studies drawn on previously unpublished material from well-known indigenous cultures show that the peoples of lowland South America select spouses to meet their economic and political goals, their social aspirations, and their emotional desires. Contributors also look at how globalization and modernization are changing ancestral norms and values. This volume is a richly diverse portrayal of agency and individual choice alongside normative kinship and marriage systems in a region that has long been central to anthropological studies of indigenous life.

We Come for Good Archaeology and Tribal Historic Preservation at the Seminole Tribe of Florida

Edited by PAUL N. BACKHOUSE, BRENT R. WEISMAN, and MARY BETH ROSEBROUGH “Offers a unique perspective on tribal approaches to managing historic preservation and addresses the multiplicity of issues common to all tribal historic preservation groups.” —Joe Watkins, director, Tribal Relations and American Cultures Program, National Park Service “An important book.”—Ryan Wheeler, director, Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology As indigenous populations are being invited to participate in cultural heritage identification, research, interpretation, management, and preservation, they are faced with a high volume of challenging questions and demands. We Come for Good describes the development and operations of the Tribal Historic Preservation Office (THPO) of the Seminole Tribe of Florida as an example of how tribes can successfully manage and retain authority over the heritage of their respective cultures. With Native voices front and center, this book demonstrates ways THPOs can work within federal and tribal governments to build capacity and uphold tribal values—core principles of a strong tribal historic preservation program. PAUL N. BACKHOUSE is the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the Seminole Tribe of Florida and director of the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Seminole Indian Museum. BRENT R.

Freedom and Resistance

Pedro Menéndez de Avilés and the Conquest of Florida

A Social History of Black Loyalists in the Bahamas

A New Manuscript

GONZALO SOLÍS DE MERÁS Edited, annotated, and translated by DAVID ARBESÚ “The most authoritative edition of Gonzalo Solís de Merás’s rare eyewitness account of Pedro Menéndez de Avilés’s 1565 expedition to Florida, one of the earliest and most valuable accounts written about any region in the United States.”—J. Michael Francis, author of Invading Colombia: Spanish Accounts of the Gonzalo Jiménez de Quesada Expedition of Conquest Pedro Menéndez de Avilés (1519–1574) founded St. Augustine in 1565. His expedition was documented by his brother-in-law, Gonzalo Solís de Merás, who left a detailed and passionate account of the events leading to the establishment of America’s oldest city. Until recently, the only extant version of Solís de Merás’s record was one single manuscript which Eugenio Ruidíaz y Caravia transcribed in 1893, and subsequent editions and translations have always followed Ruidíaz’s text. In 2012 David Arbesú discovered a more complete record: a manuscript including folios lost for centuries and, more important, excluding portions of the 1893 publication based on retellings rather than the original document. In the resulting volume, Pedro Menéndez de Avilés and the Conquest of Florida, Arbesú sheds light on principal events missing from the story of St. Augustine’s founding. By consulting the original chronicle, Arbesú provides readers with the definitive bilingual edition of this seminal text. DAVID ARBESÚ, assistant professor of Spanish at the University of South Florida, has edited various early modern and medieval Spanish texts, including La Fazienda de Ultramar and Crónica de Flores y Blancaflor.

CHRISTOPHER CURRY “Brilliant. Puts the Bahamas on the map with Jamaica, Antigua, Nova Scotia, and Sierra Leone as sites where the black refugees who fled the American victory in the War of Independence added mightily to the economy and religious life in their new homes.”—John Saillant, author of Black Puritan, Black Republican “Adds a critical dimension to our understanding of the African diaspora experience in the Age of Revolution.”—Renée Soulodre-La France, coeditor of Africa and the Americas After the American Revolution, enslaved and free blacks who had been loyal to the British cause arrived in the Bahamas, drawn by British promises of liberty and land. Freedom and Resistance shows how black loyalists struggled to find freedom, clashing with white loyalists who tried either to bind them to illegal indentured contracts or to enslave them. Despite these challenges, black loyalists made significant contributions to Bahamian society. They advanced ideas of civil liberty through political activism and armed resistance, built churches and schools that became the foundations of self-reliant black communities, and participated in the emerging market economy. Comparing the experiences of these Bahamians to those of other black loyalist communities in Jamaica and Nova Scotia, Christopher Curry adds a new global dimension to the freedom struggle that spread from the American Revolution. CHRISTOPHER CURRY is assistant professor of history at The College of The Bahamas. A volume in the series Contested Boundaries, edited by Gene Allen Smith

The Denmark Vesey Affair A Documentary History

Edited by DOUGLAS R. EGERTON and ROBERT L. PAQUETTE “This stunning and magisterial documentary history accumulates and analyzes much evidence never before considered adequately, if at all. The work of fifteen years by assiduous senior historians of slave rebellions, it not only considers the prehistory of the affair but also the long aftermath.”—David Moltke-Hansen, editor of William Gilmore Simms's Unfinished Civil War

New Directions in the Study of African American Recolonization

Home Front North Carolina during World War II


Edited by BEVERLY C. TOMEK and MATTHEW J. HETRICK “Never has the story of American African colonization been so thoroughly explored.” —Violet Showers Johnson, coauthor of African & American: West Africans in Post–Civil Rights America “Succeeds admirably in putting us back in touch with the diverse sources of support for the American Colonization Society. We learn much about the complex nature of human motivations and about the changes in attitudes, goals, and government policy that occurred over time.”—Paul D. Escott, author of Uncommonly Savage: Civil War and Remembrance in Spain and the United States

In 1822, thirty-four slaves and their leader, a free black man named Denmark Vesey, were tried and executed for their alleged plot to murder the white citizens of Charleston, South Carolina. Presenting a vast collection of contemporary documents that support or contradict the “official” story, the editors of this volume annotate the texts and interpret the evidence. This is the definitive account of a landmark event that spurred the South to secession and holds symbolic meaning today— as evidenced by the 2015 shooting that took place in Emanuel AME Church, a church Vesey had attended. This volume argues that the Vesey plot was one of the most sophisticated acts of collective slave resistance in the history of the United States.

This volume closely examines the movement to resettle black Americans in Africa, an effort led by the American Colonization Society during the nineteenth century and a heavily debated part of American history. Some believe it was inspired by antislavery principles, but others think it was a proslavery reaction against the presence of free blacks in society. Moving beyond this simplistic debate, contributors link the movement to other historical developments of the time, revealing a complex web of different schemes, ideologies, and activities behind the relocation of African Americans to Liberia. They explain what colonization, emigration, immigration, abolition, and emancipation meant within nuanced nineteenth-century contexts, looking through many lenses to more accurately reflect the past.

“A powerful book; a tale of heroism, volunteerism, and sacrifice.”—Gary R. Mormino, author of Land of Sunshine, State of Dreams: A Social History of Modern Florida “Personal anecdotes humanize the narrative and add a poignant impact. The use of newspaper editorials also provides an understanding of how North Carolinians responded to the war.”—Melton A. McLaurin, author of The Marines of Montford Point: America’s First Black Marines Home Front argues that World War II was the most significant event in the history of modern North Carolina, an experience that dramatically improved the lives of ordinary citizens by transforming the rural state into an urban and industrialized society. Julian Pleasants uses oral history interviews, newspaper accounts, and other primary sources to explore the triumphs, hardships, and emotions of North Carolinians during this critical period. Residents of the state witnessed submarine warfare, German prisoners of war in the state, racial discrimination, civil rights progress, and new openings for women in society. With new military bases and increased demand for textiles, crops, lumber, furniture, tobacco, and military service, they saw better jobs, higher living standards, and a new and growing middle class due to these life-changing years. JULIAN M. PLEASANTS is professor emeritus of history and former director of the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program at the University of Florida. He is the author of several books, including The Political Career of W. Kerr Scott: The Squire from Haw River.

The Liberal Consensus Reconsidered American Politics and Society in the Postwar Era

Edited by ROBERT MASON and IWAN MORGAN “An exceptionally fine collection that distills the very latest writing on mid-twentieth-century U.S. politics and society.”—Gareth Davies, author of From Opportunity to Entitlement: The Transformation and Decline of Great Society Liberalism “Offers a diverse mix of interpretations that demonstrate how this era was often marked by intense political and cultural conflict. Rightly cautions against drawing too sharp a contrast between this period and the polarization of our time.”—Timothy N. Thurber, author of Republicans and Race: The GOP’s Frayed Relationship with African Americans, 1945–1974 Confronting Godfrey Hodgson’s long-standing theory that a “liberal consensus” shaped the United States after World War II, this volume finds that although elite politicians from both parties did share certain principles that gave direction to postwar America, the nation still experienced major political, cultural, and ideological conflict during this time. Here, leading scholars—including Hodgson himself—draw on fresh research to examine how the consensus related to key policy areas, how it was viewed by different factions and groups, what its limitations were, and why it fell apart in the late 1960s. They offer new insights into the era and diverging opinions on one of the most influential interpretations of mid-twentieth-century U.S. history.

The Paradox of Paternalism

Istwa across the Water

Women and the Politics of Authoritarianism in the Dominican Republic

Haitian History, Memory, and the Cultural Imagination

ELIZABETH S. MANLEY “An exciting study that reveals the complexity of women’s multiple political projects, as well as the importance of feminism—widely defined—as a powerful political force.” —Jadwiga E. Pieper Mooney, author of The Politics of Motherhood: Maternity and Women’s Rights in Twentieth-Century Chile “An engaging overview of the role played by women in supporting and contesting authoritarian regimes in the twentieth-century Dominican Republic. Essential reading for all historians of gender in Latin America.” —Nicola Foote, coeditor of Immigration and National Identities in Latin America From the rise of dictator Rafael Trujillo in the early 1930s to the rule of his successor Joaquín Balaguer in the 1970s, women were frequently absent or erased from public political narratives in the Dominican Republic. Filling these silences, The Paradox of Paternalism shows that women were central to local, national, and international politics during this period. Women activists from across the political spectrum engaged with the state by working within both authoritarian regimes and inter-American networks, founding modern Dominican feminism and contributing to the rise of twentieth-century women’s liberation in the Global South. ELIZABETH S. MANLEY is associate professor of history at Xavier University of Louisiana. A volume in the series Latin American and Caribbean Arts and Culture, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation

TONI PRESSLEYSANON “Untwines the aesthetic, sociohistorical, and spiritual ties that bind and unbind the first black republic to the African continent.” —Gina Athena Ulysse, author of Why Haiti Needs New Narratives: A Post-Quake Chronicle “A nonlinear, creative, powerful reflection on history and the stories we tell about ourselves.” —Patrick Bellegarde-Smith, author of Haiti: The Breached Citadel Gathering oral stories and visual art from both sides of the Atlantic, Istwa across the Water stitches together fragmented parts of the African diaspora. Toni Pressley-Sanon challenges the tendency to read history linearly and recovers the submerged histories of Haiti through alternative methods rooted in the island’s spiritual and cultural traditions. Using the Vodou concept of marasa, or twinned entities, this book takes parts of Dahomey (the present-day Benin Republic) and the Kongo region—from where many Haitians are descended—as Haiti’s twinned sites of cultural production. It draws on poet Kamau Brathwaite’s idea of tidalectics, the back-and-forth movement of ocean waves, as a way to look at cultural exchange. Above all, it searches out the places where history and memory intersect, expressed by the Kreyòl term istwa, offering a bold new approach for understanding Haitian histories and imagining Haitian futures. TONI PRESSLEY-SANON, assistant professor of African and African American studies at Eastern Michigan University, is the author of The Haitian Peasantry through Oral and Written Literature.

Precarious Passages Furiously Funny The Diasporic Imagination in Contemporary Black Anglophone Fiction

TUIRE VALKEAKARI “Makes a compelling case for a rethinking of narrative moments including slavery, the Middle Passage, and colonization that have defined the fiction produced in a transatlantic geography. A must-read.” —Maxine Lavon Montgomery, author of The Fiction of Gloria Naylor: Houses and Spaces of Resistance “Moves productively between the civil-rights generation of African American novelists, to the cultural-nationalist generation of Caribbean writers from the decolonization era, to contemporary British, Canadian, and American writers.”—Olakunle George, author of Relocating Agency: Modernity and African Letters Novels written by members of the far-flung black Anglophone diaspora are usually read, interpreted, and anthologized in separate categories: “African American,”“black Canadian,” “black British,” or “postcolonial African Caribbean.” With a new integrative approach, this book unites literature from these groups, arguing that fiction creates and sustains a sense of a wider African diasporic community in the Western world. In Precarious Passages, Tuire Valkeakari analyzes the writing of Toni Morrison, Caryl Phillips, Lawrence Hill, and other contemporary novelists of African descent. She shows how their novels connect with each other and with defining moments in the transatlantic experience marked by migration and displacement from home, continually reimagining what it means to share a black diasporic identity.

Comic Rage from Ralph Ellison to Chris Rock

TERRENCE T. TUCKER “An important and timely expansion of American racial discourse. Tucker’s demonstration of how the comic is not (just) funny and how rage is not (just) destructive is a welcome reminder that willful injustice merits irreverent scorn.”—Derek Maus, coeditor of Post-Soul Satire: Black Identity after Civil Rights “Adroitly explores how comic rage is a skillfully crafted, multifaceted critique of white supremacy and a soaring articulation of African American humanity and possibility. Sparkling and highly readable scholarship.”—Keith Gilyard, author of John Oliver Killens: A Life of Black Literary Activism A combustible mix of fury and radicalism, pathos and pain, wit and love—Terrence Tucker calls it “comic rage,” and he shows how it has been used by African American artists to aggressively critique America’s racial divide. In Furiously Funny, Tucker finds that comic rage developed from black oral tradition and first shows up in literature by George Schuyler and Ralph Ellison shortly after World War II. He examines its role in novels and plays, following the growth of the expression to comics and stand-up comedy and film, where Richard Pryor, Spike Lee, Whoopi Goldberg, and Chris Rock have all used the technique. Connecting through humor to what is familiar in both mainstream and African American culture, works of comic rage are at the center of American racial dialogue. The simultaneous expression of comedy and militancy enables artists to reject white stereotypes of blackness and also to confront white audiences with America’s legacy of racial oppression. Tucker shows how this important art form continues to expand in new ways in the twenty-first century. TERRENCE T. TUCKER is associate professor of English at the University of Memphis.

Hemingway and Italy Twenty-First Century Perspectives

Edited by MARK CIRINO and MARK P. OTT “A true gift for Hemingway aficionados! With previously unpublished work by Hemingway, memories of the writer by those who knew him, and essays by an outstanding international team of scholars, this collection deepens our understanding of Hemingway’s relationship to a country that he loved and that was central to his fiction.”—Carl P. Eby, author of Hemingway’s Fetishism “Brings a richer and more cosmopolitan understanding of the Italian underpinnings of Hemingway’s writing.”—Linda Patterson Miller, editor of Letters from the Lost Generation From his World War I service in Italy through his transformational return visits during the decades that followed, Ernest Hemingway’s Italian experiences were fundamental to his artistic development. Hemingway and Italy offers essays from top scholars, exciting new voices, and people who knew Hemingway during his Italian days, examining how his adopted homeland shaped his writing and his legacy. Diverse and international, the collection addresses Hemingway’s many Italys—the terrain and people he encountered during his life and the country he transposed into his fiction. Contributors analyze Hemingway’s Italian works, including A Farewell to Arms, Across the River and into the Trees, lesser-known short stories, fables, and even an unpublished sketch.

The Many Facades of Edith Sitwell

A Curious Peril

Signs that Sing

H.D.’s Late Modernist Prose



Hybrid Poetics in Old English Verse

“A fascinating book that takes us deep into Edith Sitwell’s world of artifice, disguise, high camp, and verbal ingenuity. In these essays, Sitwell emerges as a central figure in an alternative avantgarde in early twentieth-century Britain.” —Faye Hammill, author of Sophistication: A Literary and Cultural History Establishing Edith Sitwell at the center of British modernism, this volume showcases her many achievements in poetry, autobiography, novel writing, criticism, art, and performance. Forgoing the gossip about her eccentric appearance and self-fashioned persona that has too often overshadowed serious writing about her work, the contributors explore how Sitwell combined persona and poetry to foster an outpouring of iconoclastic creativity. The Many Facades of Edith Sitwell argues that Sitwell was key to the development of a British avant-garde that operated alongside the conventionally accepted transatlantic modernism of Ezra Pound and T. S. Eliot. With Sitwell as an influential literary player and social architect, the British interwar arts scene was not an ascetic escape from personality— as the modernism of Pound and Eliot has often been characterized—but an alternative space of flamboyant, extravagant, and ornate performance. ALLAN PERO is associate professor of English at the University of Western Ontario. GYLLIAN PHILLIPS is associate professor of English studies at Nipissing University.

“Demonstrating how literary aspects of H.D.’s late prose contribute to politically attuned cultural work, Vetter astutely counters longstanding claims about H.D.’s ‘escapism.’” —Miranda Hickman, author of The Geometry of Modernism “An important, meticulously researched treatment of H.D.’s post–WWII writing that helps us understand her multiple genre-bending and time-warping moves.”—Madelyn Detloff, author of The Value of Virginia Woolf A Curious Peril examines the prose penned by modernist writer H.D. in the aftermath of World War II, a little-known body of work that has been neglected by scholars, and argues that the trauma H.D. experienced in London during the war profoundly changed her writing. Lara Vetter reveals a shift in these writings from classical “escapist” settings to politically aware explorations of gender, spirituality, nation, and imperialism. Impelled by the shocking political crises of the early 1940s, and increasingly sensitive to imperialist logics, H.D. began to write about the history of modern Europe using innovative forms and genres. She directed her wellknown interest in mysticism and otherworldly themes toward the material world of empirebuilding and perpetual war. Vetter contends that H.D.’s postwar work is essential to understanding the writer’s entire career, marking her entrance into late modernism and even foretelling crucial aspects of postmodernism. LARA VETTER, associate professor of English at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, is the editor of H.D.’s By Avon River and the author of Modernist Writings and Religioscientific Discourse: H.D., Loy, and Toomer.

HEATHER MARING “A critically sophisticated leap forward in the study of early medieval literature, Signs that Sing issues a bold challenge to long-held preconceptions about the relationships underlying Old English poetry between past and present, pagan and Christian, and oral and literary.”—Joseph Falaky Nagy, author of Conversing with Angels and Ancients: Literary Myths of Medieval Ireland “Maring sidesteps simplistic oral versus literary schools of thought as she considers Old English verse as the product of an emergent hybrid form. A welcome contribution to oral poetics and the understanding of the earliest period of English literature.”—John D. Niles, author of The Idea of Anglo-Saxon England 1066–1901 “Elegantly shows how the elements of oral poetry continued to inspire the authors of Old English verse long after their conversion to Christianity.”—Emily V. Thornbury, author of Becoming a Poet in Anglo-Saxon England In Signs that Sing, Heather Maring argues that oral tradition, religious ritual, and literate Latin-based practices are dynamically interconnected in Old English poetry. Resisting the tendency to study these different forms of expression separately, Maring contends that poets combined them in hybrid techniques that were important to the early development of English literature. Maring examines a variety of texts, including Beowulf, The Battle of Maldon, The Dream of the Rood, and the Advent Lyrics, and shows how themes from oral tradition became metaphors for sacred concepts in the hands of Christian authors and how oral performance and religious liturgy influenced written poetry. The result, she demonstrates, is richly elaborate verse filled with shared symbols and themes that a wide range of audiences could understand and find meaningful. HEATHER MARING is assistant professor of English at Arizona State University.
